Actor-comedian Aasif Mandvi was born in India, raised in Britain and earned fame in the US on The Daily Show by satirising East-West relations.
Mandvi's acting fame in the US was popularized in 2006 after appearing as a correspondent on Comedy Central's The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
Since then, he has attracted a huge following for his satirical representation of East-West cultural issues, such as faith, government, and immigration.
He has performed in theatre both on - and off-Broadway, starred in a number of television shows, and acted in over a dozen films, including Today's Special (2009) in which he starred and co-wrote.
Born in India and raised in the UK, Mandvi experienced first-hand the challenges of cultural adaptation from a young age.
When he was 16, his family moved to Florida, USA where he also attended college before moving to New York City.
His humorous nature and optimism have always allowed him to address challenges face on, especially when breaking into the Hollywood acting industry.
